Dr. Daanish Kazi rejoins the team at Surgical Healing Arts

Kazi returns to the practice following a fellowship in bariatric surgery 

Experienced bariatric and general surgeon Dr. Daanish Kazi has returned to Surgical Healing Arts Center and joined the surgical team, which specializes in surgical and medical weight loss, advanced laparoscopic and endoscopic surgery, general surgery and body contouring surgery after weight loss. 

“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Kazi back,” said Dr. Moses Shieh, founder of Surgical Healing Arts Center. “As a board-certified general surgeon with training in the bariatric specialty, he brings passion for matching patients with weight loss surgery that will best help them meet their goals.” 

In 2015, Kazi came to Surgical Healing Arts as an advanced gastrointestinal surgeon. In 2016, he was named Outstanding Physician of the Quarter for his work with Surgical Healing Arts at Gulf Coast Medical Center. He fell in love with bariatric surgery and decided to undertake a second fellowship intensive in bariatric and foregut surgery with University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, where he continued his practice after the fellowship. 

“I’m pleased to return to my roots and family in Florida,” he said. “I bring my passion for weight loss back to where it ignited and hope to add to the experience and surgical expertise at Surgical Healing Arts.” 

Kazi graduated from Nova Southeastern University Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine after receiving an undergraduate degree in biochemistry and molecular biology from the University of Miami. He completed a surgery residency at St. John’s Hospital of Macomb-Oakland in Sterling Heights, Michigan, where he was named surgical resident of the year. He also had a fellowship in Advanced GI Minimally Invasive Surgery at St. Vincent Hospitals and Health Care Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.  

Kazi enjoys teaching and has been a preceptor for medical students and residents for most of his surgical career. During his free time, he enjoys cooking and outdoor activities.
